TransUnion takes action to help collect child support

15399330_S.jpgMissouri parents know how expensive it can be to raise a child, and many parents struggle to provide all the things a child needs. School will be starting soon, and extra expenses like school supplies, new clothes and money for extracurricular activities can leave a parent feeling frustrated. It is estimated that nearly 60% of custodial parents are not collecting the court-ordered child support payments they should be, and in many situations, it can be difficult to track down the other parent that has failed to pay. 

Falling behind on child support could result in loss of property

104482663_S.jpgThe state of Missouri has a handy system that matches residents to unclaimed property in their name. Unclaimed property is handled by the State Treasurer's office. Unclaimed property is not usually something people can hold or touch; rather, it is usually a bank account that was forgotten, a safety deposit box or other financial asset. Now, the state plans to use this system to help ease the problem of unpaid child support

Could moving affect your child support payments?

43696673_S.jpgMissouri parents know that, when it comes to taking care of a child, finances can become a concern.

Many parents may have a child support order, which helps ensure that both parents contribute to a child's financial needs.

Child support payments can provide much-needed help for kids

64575667_S.jpgMissouri parents are working hard. Recent statistics illustrate that the rate of child poverty across the state is on the decline. Still, many families struggle to make ends meet, and a parent may have resources, like filing for child support, that he or she has not explored. 

Child support needs may change

53957480_S.jpgMany Missouri parents know what it's like to work around a child custody schedule. When two parents share time with a child, having the appropriate court order in place can decrease stress on both parents and children. Often, when the time comes to calculate child support, the amount of time each parent has a child under his or her roof is an important factor to consider. 

Shocking report reveals national child support issues

83442712_S.jpgMissouri residents need only tune in to the daily news to see a recent rash of tabloid-esque stories surrounding celebrity parents. Most recently, R&B singer R. Kelly was reported to be in arrears on his child support in an amount of $161,000.

Minimum wage is increasing, but child support remains imperative

41915759_S.jpgMissouri parents who work hard to support their children may have celebrated the recent news that the state voted to increase minimum wage for workers. Many households, especially single-parent homes, are struggling financially. A parent may find it difficult to cover all the expenses necessary to provide a stable home for his or her children. In many situations, it is imperative to make sure child support payments are collected in a timely fashion.
